Bird Study Group Meeting (March 2024)

March 6 @ 7:30 pm

Presentation Name: Eagle Count
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2024
Time: 7:30pm

Presentation Info:
Every year thousands of Golden Eagles fly along the ridges past Banff and Canmore – migrating north in the spring and back south in the fall. For more than 30 years, teams of citizen scientist volunteers with the Rocky Mountain Eagle Research Foundation have been monitoring this amazing migration from the banks of the Kananaskis River near Kananaskis Village. This talk will cover the history of the eagle count, what it’s like to be out at the count, trends determined so far, and how the count fits with other raptor counts across the continent.

Presenter Bio:
After retiring early from a career in tech, Caroline immersed herself in the world of birding. She now makes use of her expertise by participating in various citizen science projects throughout the year in addition to the eagle migration count, such as various bird counts, bird banding, and breeding bird surveys. She is a principal observer for the eagle migration count and a member of the board of the Rocky Mountain Eagle Research Foundation, in charge of the data and technical side of the operation. She also serves on the Alberta Bird Record Committee, and is a member of the Data Committee of the Hawk Migration Association of North America.

Zoom information will be sent to Nature Calgary members before the event.
